The message today is based on the Old Testament lesson from Joshua 24:1-3; 14-25. Joshua is the successor to Moses. He and Caleb were the only 2 Israelites from the first generations of folks who followed Moses out of Egypt that actually entered the Promised Land. This is mainly because, when everyone else feared their enemies, Joshua and Caleb trusted that God would see them through the tough times. In a final sermon, Joshua tells his people that they are to be living witnesses of their covenant with God.
Taking a cue from the prophet Joshua, I would like us to begin seriously considering how the Holy Spirit might be asking us to witness in new ways to the liberating grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
